About OC Mini Maker Faire:

The third OC Mini Maker Faire is sure to be a great time for all!

About Maker Faire:

Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.

Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.

The original Maker Faire event was heldin San Mateo, CA and in 2014 celebrated its ninth annual show with some 1100 makers and 130,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagshipevent, has grown in three years to 700+ makers and 70,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Orlando, Trondheim, Oslo, Rome, Newcastle (UK), Shenzhen and Tokyo are the home of “featured” Maker Faires (200+ makers), and over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in Orange County.

Maker Faire is organized by Make: magazine and supported by Maker Media.

About Make: Magazine:

Make: is the first magazine devoted entirely to Do-It-Yourself (DIY) technology projects. MAKE unites, inspires, informs, and entertains a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their backyards, basements, and garages. MAKE celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your will. Subscribe here.


Besides the magazine and the faire, MAKE is:

  • a vital online stream of news and projects,;
  • a retail outlet for kits and books, the Maker Shed;
  • a steady stream of fun and instruction via our YouTube channel;
  • Make: Projects, a library of projects with step-by-step instructions
  • a book publishing imprint with best-in-category titles on introductions to electronics, Raspberry Pi, Arduino and more.
